Re: Worried about daughter/grandkids!

I think that is the only thing you can do. They are adults and have four children so they should provide for the children themselves, not expect hand outs all the time. It is a really difficult situation. I have no contact anymore with my daughter and her 3 children as they were making me ill, never...

Re: Worried about daughter/grandkids!

I wonder if it might be worth you inviting your daughter and her children for a mini break to your place for a few days, saying it would be nice to be able to give her a little break from everything and then maybe have a frank conversation with her about what is going on and voice your concerns abou...

Re: Worried about daughter/grandkids!

It's quite tricky really. They are grown ups and you have helped them over the years. They obviously think you are going to bail them out with the uniforms or they wouldn't have mentioned the costs of them. Do you have your grandchildren to stay with you over the school holidays? How do they seem as...

Re: Onions

I have been a bit busy the last six weeks or so being a suffragette sort of. I am trying to catch up, which given the weather went from flipping freezing and nothing happening to scorchio in a matter of a few weeks, things are a bit confused. Been too hot to even get into the tunnel and plant stuff ...

I gave a mattress away to a fella who lives in a bus, it was far better than the one he was currently sleeping on and he was chuffed to bits with it.

Re: Frost protection

I have a massive hoodie made from fleece that fits over my tomato plants when I plant them out, it fits over 5 foot high hoops and is double thickness, we made it a few years ago by stapling the fleece together

Re: Wheelbarrow tyre containers

Wheelbarrow tyres are not worth bothering with really, I do use car tyres to grow comfrey in and I am not worried about anything in car tyres, , I think there was a really good thread on here once about tyres, after talking to my neighbour who has a science degree and the thread that was on here onc...

Re: Newbie here :)

I think the best way forward is to approach your local planning department and just ask off the record what is involved in low impact living on a piece of land that you buy, it might be that you can buy a piece of ground with an old or ruined cottage on it which is then considered to be residential....

Re: Newbie here :)

Why not have a weekend out of season in a yurt, that would give you a good idea of what it would be like, or a week, why wouldn't you, there is a place called Pink Apple Orchard and they do camping in Celtic yurts

Re: pruning fruit trees do i need a wound healer ?

I don't use anything to heal trees when I prune, if it is stone fruit you are better off waiting until there are leaves on the trees as the sap heals cuts. You can also give your trees a seeweed feed, you can get some seaweed liquid, dilute as per instructions and spray the trees when they come into...
